At first blush, it may not seem like much; just a little duckbill popping out from some subtle cream-coloured bodywork, the only colour option for this particular car, the ultra-limited-only-250-made 2010 911 Sport Classic. Indeed, it isn’t much, looking positively pedestrian compared to the massive scaffolding seen on the likes of the Porsche GT2 and GT3 road racers.
The Sport Classic really is all about that wing, though, which is designed to recall past Porsche greats like the 1972 Carrera RS 2.7. Other features on the Sport Classic are borrowed from previous Porsches — namely the Fuchs lookalike alloy wheels and the mascara-like outlines ‘round the headlights –- while still others are a pleasing mashup of Porsches of the era, such as the wide fenders from the Carrera 4 and GT2/3 models, the Power Kit that provides an additional 23 hp over the standard Carrera S motor, Porsche Active Suspension Management and ceramic brakes.
It’s like a greatest hits of all things 911, and it all starts with that spoiler.
